Many years have passed since Afro fought to become the number one samurai and succeeded in avenging his father's murder. Living quietly and without violence, Afro maintains a quiet life until his peace is shattered by an old enemy Jinno and a mysterious woman. Together the two of them take the Number One headband from Afro as well as his father's decayed skull. Promising to torture him, the woman challenges Afro to seek out the Number Two Headband. Only then may he challenge her and grant his father peace once more. Who is this woman who wishes so much suffering on Afro, and how many lives must he take before he may once again put violence behind him?
Badass samurai being badasses, cutting up fools and taking on forces larger than them. Both feature badass fights and some real good action and tunes to go along with it. Afro Samurai Resurrection is still a tale of revenge of sorts, threading a path of death and destruction; Samurai 7 is more so good vs evil, more morals and a more wholesome reason to fight in worlds of samurai and modern technology.
In the year 2021, mankind was defeated by Gastrea, a parasitical virus, and was forced to live within a wall made of Baranuim monoliths, a metal that is able to subdue Gastrea. Soon, the "Cursed Children" were discovered: children born infected with the Gastrea virus who possess superhuman abilities. Due to the Gastrea virus' intervention, the Cursed Children could only be female. Civil Securities are formed to specialize fighting against Gastrea, operating with the pair of an Initiator, who are cursed children, and a Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children. Ten years after the war, Rentarou Satomi, a high school student and Civil Security member, and his Initator Enju Aihara, receive a secret mission to prevent Tokyo's destruction.
Both anime start out with a basic mission in the beginning, and then eventually in the half of it, the focus shifts to a war that break out.
For Black Bullet, the characters are just going around on normal missions to fight against the Gastrea. Meanwhile, in Samurai 7, they start out just looking for recruits and some other plotlines unfold. Near the middle of Black Bullet, the characters start looking for recruits as well.
In both anime, near the middle of the series, the focus shifts to something else, a war starts in both anime... Eventually, during the war, characters start to die.
When I was watching the ending episodes of Black Bullet, it just reminded me so much of Samurai 7..because of a sudden war and main characters dying, I just had to make a recomendation!
